Two people were killed and 10 injured after a double storey residential building collapsed near Bihar Colony in Lyari’s Koyla Godam on Sunday morning.

Rescue teams have been immediately called in. The bodies and injured people are being shifted to a hospital.

Teams from the Rangers, police and the district administration have started reaching the site and a rescue operation has begun. According to the rescue officials, it is suspected that more people are stuck under the debris for which heavy machinery has been called.

As the building is located in a narrow street, it is feared that officials will face difficulty conducting the rescue operation.

Following the incident, the building beside the collapsed building suffered damages and started showing cracks and is being evacuated. Residents are being shifted to a safer location.

According to SBCA Information Director Ali Mehdi, a house near the building was under construction. An excavator used in the construction had hit the building, resulting in the collapse.

SBCA teams have reached the accident site and are inspecting other buildings and quarters in the area. Mehdi added that a case will be registered against the owner of the under-construction plot and the excavator driver.

Earlier this week, a building collapsed in Karachi’s Korangi in which four people lost their lives.
